Macs don't run Windows, the run MacOS - if it's 10 years old and you've never used it before, I would suggest spending $150 on ebay for a Pentium 3 500 MHz system.  That mac is not going to be easy to get working on the internet and if you've got a disk with a question mark, that means the system is having problems identifying a disk drive to boot from.  You've got other problems with it.  Possibly a bad disk, in which case you need System CDs for the Mac
